They're plakats (short fin betta's) but I don't know if there are different types.

They're very addictive! Granted 9 of them are girls in well planted 20g long sorority tank, but everyone else has their own tank. Trying to cut down, not replacing ones that pass and dismantling their tanks... I have way too many tanks to maintain properly.

Thank you, the coloration is called platinum black, or platinum dragon scale. The white eye ares are not a good thing-its called diamond eye and is scales grown over the eyes which limits his sight quite a bit-could render him completely blind. its unfortunately very common with platinum/dragon scale/metallic scaled bettas. What's worse is some sellers try to play it up as a good thing, and not explain the handicap and extra care needed. They need a little extra care when feeding (make a consistent feeding spot with no current to they can get at food easier) and don't do as well with having their tank rescaped often if near/completely blind as they'll have to relearn their way around all over again..

The marimo is tied to cholla wood halves, think I used 6-8 1.5"-2" balls. He can go behind the wood + heater and sponge filter is hidden behind. Love how he pops against the dark marimo.

Its called 'koi' or 'red koi'.. sometimes 'red black fancy' but 'koi' just a different word breeders started using to sell their marble genetic fish-marbles have unstable color and the light color is taken over by red or blue and black with time. Petco will sell koi bettas now. You can easily find them on e-bay ad aquabid too. Just remember if you buy online it probably won't look like its sale photo by the time you get it.
Yellow koi are a bit more stable though their black (and any blue they have) will spread, but the yellow don't' take over white/pale color as aggressively.
